Recycle Food Packages as Teaching Aids!

Hi Tutors, it has been a few days since I’ve posted…busy times at TLC!  Here is an interesting new idea from TESOL, but I think basic literacy tutors can use it just as well as ESL tutors.

Thanks to TESOL Connections:  June 2013 for another great idea!  Author and ESL teacher Elena Shvidko tells how to use empty food packages to teach grammar!  She gives five activities using packaging to teach quantifiers, verb tenses, imperatives, and comparative degrees of adjectives.  Check them out…and let us know on the blog how you have used these kinds of “environmental texts” to teach in new and inventive ways.


Have a good Tuesday!  lder
